"Students, the stakeholders, we are all here for. I think that students will have to navigate a lot of noise. I do think that it will be, at least for a time, a little bit more difficult to keep track of all the different pathways and requirements in their college applications. But ultimately, in 10 years time, I'm hopeful that we'll be able to see totally new methods for students gaining admission to colleges. We're already seeing some creative solutions coming out of lots of different colleges, right? Like shout out to Ashley Pauly for figuring out ways to ensure that even students who don't have access to calculus in high school are able to earn admission to Caltech. Princeton just announced their community college transfer program. I think we're going to see lots of colleges experimenting with different ways of evaluating students that might not look like the common application or any application. Maybe there'll be video involved. Maybe it will go back to more live stuff. Who knows? I'm excited for the ways that we, hopefully, as a field, speaking as a college admission officer, can bring more equity to the opportunities that students have to gain access to our communities. And I hope that we use this moment to ensure that students can really shine in the ways that are best for them. I think the trick will be that the folks directly supporting students, like their families and their school counselors and maybe their CBOs, will have to be that frontline of defense to gather the information about what each institution is asking for moving forward.We'll stop it at that, because at the end of the day, students, we work for you. We are here to serve and to help you. And so unfortunately, that's all the time we have. But I want to say thank you to David, to Akil, and to Twink for joining us on the podcast.

"I'm really on really frustrated i uh... i it's the day before thanksgiving i was really hoping to leave you all on high note now in case you haven't heard we have a terror attack being reported at the uh... new york border with canada near niagara falls at the rainbow edge why because that's what demon savages do they like to ruin everything that's why they're demon savages of course left the left loves them mike i'm sure they'll be a pro hamas rally tomorrow i have no idea who these people are i don't know what their motivation is it doesn't matter the point is whether they are left wing communist right pro wing -hamas i don't really care they you know they apparently tried to kill some people killed looks like they killed themselves to dead in this car bomb attack but i'm frustrated because i'm just gonna read it to you i i can't tell you enough i opened up the show discussing this today that if you're listening to left wing media you are going to get yourself killed i i mean every word of that you have to understand that the left wing media is populated by absolute demon savages themselves they have no interest in journalistic integrity whatsoever they have one goal and one goal only to do everything they can to silence the political opposition of the liberal movement united states that's it piece of human feces david ingram from nbc human waste pile david ingram from from nbc in an article i highlighted on my show on october conservative stoke fears of a hamas attack in the united states no credible threat the fbi says he cites a whole bunch of conservatives media matters wrote the exact same article by the way and the fascinating thing about the article was all the conservatives he cites in the article were simply restating what the demon savages had claimed was going to be a day of rage or an attack in the united states but because nbc is populated by pieces of human waste and people who out journalism at all nothing their only goal is to silence people like guys they look and they go okay here's their calculus folks so you've got a bunch of jihadis who just engaged in one of the most brutal terror attacks in human history in israel they're now same on our soil conservatives are reporting that they said they want to do the same on our soil you're at nbc in the newsroom you're like none the first thing a normal person would say would be like yeah we should probably warn people sounds that serious these conservatives aren't crazy they're simply reciting the same threats the jihadis that's not what a -hole uh losers in nbc and other people are thinking they're thinking okay if there's a terror attack people get killed but how do we use this against conservatives to censor them oh i've got an idea let's write an article
Fresh update on "david" discussed on College Admissions Decoded
"For the last question on the podcast, we're going to look into the future. You know, none of us has the actual ability to predict the future, but just thinking about what we're seeing now and what could potentially be happening, I'm going to throw one question to each of you and it starts similarly. It's just a different population in essence. And so the question is, what will be the long term impact of these testing policies and strategies on college admissions? And I'll go that one to David. On the testing industry, that will go to Akil. And on students, that one will go to Twink. The future of standardized testing in college admission and for admission offices has been fundamentally redesigned by the pandemic. We were seeing a steady increase of the number of colleges that were going test optional prior to the pandemic. But after the pandemic, the tide completely turned and test optional admission is here to stay. That is something that we will see now and into the future. For admission offices, it is now much more about finding what role tests can play in admission, where they fit, if they fit, and for colleges more generally, how they're going to use them for things like scholarships and placement and other things. So for the admission profession itself, it's going to be one of discovery. There's a lot of research going on right now at colleges and universities to try to figure out how are our new processes working and what does the future look like now that we have crossed that threshold into test optional admission. David, I also hear that NACAC is going to be joining this space too. You want to talk a little bit about that? Yeah, thank you, Eddie. The fact that we are now in a period of such change means that there are a lot of people with a lot of questions and not a lot of answers. And so our organization is going to develop a center for reimagining college admission. And we want to lead our field but also be led by our field by the people who are doing the research to figure out what is the future, how do we handle the presence or absence of tests in our environment. And our hope is that we continually examine and reexamine how we do college admission in our country and how we can improve it to help make sure that more students have improved access over time. So we're really looking forward to that and hope to have a lot of good research-based discussions, including involving a lot of student voices in the future. And David's being modest. He's actually the person who everything that center is going to do reports up through David. So thank you for the work that you're about to do. We appreciate it. What's interesting is putting on my Nostradamus hat and looking at the future for the testing industry. I think there's a few different ways to look at it. Tests will change. You've already seen it with the SAT. They remodeled it to do the new mini digital SAT coming up shortly, the two-hour digital test that is exactly equivalent to the three-hour paper test. ACT has announced that they're going to be doing a digital thing just like the SAT. GMAT cut itself in half. GRE cut itself in half. Everybody is sort of, the whole testing industry is upgrading, right? Because it makes sense to things to go digital, but testing is changing. It's no longer the same test that it used to be. I also think the marketing of testing is changing, which I think is bad. Modernizing tests makes sense. Overselling them about what they measure is what concerns me. So I think that schools, students, families have to be careful about the increasingly aggressive marketing that are coming from those who create tests and sell them and tell you that based on a two-hour bubble test you took in 11th grade, we're going to determine your readiness for a career. That's a huge overreach, right? So what I see is the testing industry trying to get more creative about how it keeps itself alive. Those who help prepare students for tests may also have to be careful about that too, because those places will often oversell the data. Look, these kids with the test score always get into Harvard, see? And we have to be careful about that marketing. So I think it's going to be a little bit tougher for families to have to sort through some of the noise of those who benefit from keeping the testing industry afloat. While the testing industry struggles to figure out where its place is, how big is it going to be, how many people are going to be taking tests, that's going to take a little while to shake out. Are all the tests that currently exist going to survive? And I could see a world where we don't have as many tests as we currently do. But they'll be around in some way, shape, or form. To wrap us up, the impact on students.
Media Matters Tries to Destroy Elon Musk's X
"Linda Yaccarino said, if you know me, you know I'm committed to truth and fairness. Here's the truth. Not a single authentic user on X saw IBM, Comcast or Oracle ads next to content in the Media Matters article. Only two users saw an Apple ad next to the content, at least one of which was Media Matters. Data wins over manipulation or allegations don't mean manipulated stand with X. Yeah, this is a multidimensional hit job. And they're trying to go after Elon personally and criminally. They're trying to go after his liberation of the platform, all because Elon has now become a serious threat to the regime, to the unit party and the left by allowing us to speak, by allowing us to challenge preexisting orthodoxies, allowing us to incubate elite opinion in a way that the bad guys don't like. And so, you know, Michael, talk a little bit more about Media Matters. I don't know if they've targeted you. You know, they come after us quite a lot. Who funds these guys? It's it's it's a great question. You know, we see Rumble, we see X, you know, they're they're suing intensely. What else do we know about it? Well, we know that their executives make a whole lot of money in order to stifle your freedom of speech. In fact, the CEO, a woman named Angelo Caruso, Caruso makes four hundred fifty three thousand dollars a year. The person who's been in the news all week is actually David Brock. And he's arguably the most ideologically weaponized. He's the chairman of Media Matters, making two hundred ninety two thousand dollars a year in order to stifle your speech. But what's interesting is that you highlighted earlier Media Matters doesn't just not like Elon. They don't like you having the right to speak freely. Their donors and funders rely on them keeping the truth hidden and behind the curtain. The reality is X has been a platform that has provided for millions of Americans to learn the truth of what's happening in society in a way that never would have happened had X been under its formal leadership under Twitter. So we never would have learned about all that happened with the laptop and Hunter Biden. We never would have learned about the malfeasance in Ukraine. We never would have learned even recently about the January six tapes because so much of the effort for releasing the tapes, which I'm glad Speaker Johnson did, happened on X. So Media Matters can't lose their grip on power. Their grip on power relies on you not knowing the truth. And so we're seeing, as you described, this very coordinated hit job from people who are paid very, very highly in order to stifle your freedom of speech. One other thing that I will note is that some of the executives that Media Matters has tried to pull to drop their ads are people like NBC. NBC is a really interesting case because just last week NBC had a journalist of theirs that was defending somebody, an editor in chief of a progressive news site that ended up being outed as a pedophile, is now being charged with child pornography counts in one of the most egregious cases that law enforcement has ever seen in that area. So we're seeing that this virtue signaling is really just meant to target you. They don't want you to speak freely. And even these advertisers are backing people that are corrupt and dysfunctional. And yet Media Matters is silent on it. So Media Matters hasn't called out NBC about that, but they'll gladly call out NBC on a fake story that is not rooted in real data. And I'm glad that X ultimately is calling it

147: Peacemaking in Paris: The Treaty of Versailles - burst 2
"Today is a story of peacemaking, particularly 1919's of six -month Paris Peace Conference culminating in the Allied Powers Treaty with Germany, the Treaty of Versailles. And it has a lot of moving pieces. We'll start with the U .S. midterm elections of 1918, which could impact the Senate's future choice to ratify this treaty or not. From there, we'll join Woodrow Wilson, who's personally representing the U .S. at the conference, to push his 14 points, especially his League of Nations. But can the idealist American out -navigate Georges Clemenceau, who wants to punish Germany and dismantle its military capabilities? What about the smooth -operating Welsh wizard Britain's David Lloyd George? We'll find out as we hear what their conflicting values and goals yield amid talks of a League of Nations assigning quote -unquote mandates in the Middle East, Africa, and the Pacific as Georges and Woodrow's timbers flare over German and French territory. And of course, as we learn what this conference ultimately asks, sorry, demands, that the Germans sign in the Palace of Versailles Hall of

I mean, you know that, right? They are panicking at this moment. This is why David Axelrod came out a few weeks ago. If you remember Axelrod, he was in Chicago, Illinois. The Obamas had their little reunion, the 15th anniversary of and where he said, you know, today we change America, whatever the exact line was, the transformation, the fundamental transformation of America. Well, David Axelrod, who was Obama's guy, comes out on that Sunday morning and says, basically, in effect, Joe Biden's got to go. Right? Joe Biden's got to go. He can't win. And then he doubles down on it. Joe Biden calls him a pejorative for a man's, you know, the P word for that. And David Axelrod says, hey, look, call me whatever you want, but the guy can't win. And then you have these other people coming out, Bill Maher. And you have other pundits on the left coming out and saying the same thing. And Democrats are panicking. They realize Joe Biden's a terrible candidate. He's corrupt. He's

A highlight from Communicating Christ to Others
"Let's open our Bibles tonight, we're gonna actually be in just a couple quick passages tonight, but let's begin this evening in the book of Mark chapter 16, Mark 16, we're gonna look at one of the Great Commission passages to begin with tonight. The title of tonight's message is, Communicating Christ to Others. Communicating Christ to Others. What do we mean by that? So we're gonna start out with something, a very familiar command to us by the Lord Jesus, so Mark 16 and verse 15. The Bible says here, And He said unto them, unto His disciples, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature, or literally to all creation. Wherever you go, go and preach the gospel, proclaim the gospel. And so this is definitely some very important instructions from our Lord, we refer to this as the Great Commission, and as a command for us to be His salt alights, to spread His message of truth, no matter where we go around the world. We've been talking on Wednesday nights, one of the blessings or assurances that Jesus gave His disciples and even to us, that we would do greater works than even He did, and not greater in like how many or even in the way that they're being done, but greater in the scope that was done. And so remember Jesus, the miracles that He performed was pretty much just to Israel, His teaching was to Israel, to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, but we see in the book of Acts, that message went really not in just Jerusalem and Judea, but also Samaria in the uttermost part of the world, much broader than it was during Christ's ministry itself. And so it's again, they didn't do a greater job than Jesus did, I mean, no one can do that, okay? But the scope of it was much greater. And so tonight we're going to be talking about really the application of that, and even as we look at missions today, here at Victory Baptist, I'm very proud that we support about 21 missionaries serving really around the world, representing human here in Minnesota and then abroad, and we rejoice in that. I'm really looking forward to this missions conference coming up in just a few weeks. Again, we have three speakers that will be with us, Brother Sam Slobodian, who we know well, reaching Ukrainians and Eastern Europeans, Russian speakers, predominantly, with the gospel, and looking forward to hearing an update from what's going on in his world, his ministry. And then we have another man, Andrew Counterman, who is a director over a ministry that helps church planters in Latin America, and God has been doing some good things through his ministry. I actually talked to him this week, and I found out that years ago, he actually used to be on the board of BIEM, which is the mission board of Sam Slobodian. So he and Sam Slobodian are good friends, haven't seen each other in a while, so they look forward to reconnecting at the conference. Small world, isn't it? And then we have David Bennett, with Silent Word Ministries International. I've known David for many years, and he ministers to the deaf around the world, and really kind of an interesting mission field. I think a lot of times we forget about the deaf communities around, and how much they do need to hear, literally, they need to hear Jesus, they need to hear about Jesus. How do deaf people hear? They actually hear with their eyes and they talk with their hands, okay? Pretty amazing. They still communicate. So very interesting, how do we share the gospel with the deaf around us? And we're gonna do a lot of application here tonight as well. So when we think about the Great Commission, to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, although this command is simple, the task before us is great. In human terms, the Great Commission is daunting, but that God has promised us His presence and His power as we go forth in His name. In the world's population today, we have what, 7 .7 billion people, I believe, it's growing by the minute, right? And so there's a lot of people in this world, especially in the past 100 years, my word, the world's population has grown exceedingly. And so when we think of that, and we're supposed to go into all the world, preach the gospel to every creature, every person, wow, where do you start? Where do you begin? And I think that's kind of, when you look at it again from a human perspective, that seems overwhelming, but how do we do this? By looking at modern missions and when we kind of the traditional approach we take to missions, even here at Victory Baptist, there are a few challenges that must be considered. So I wanna do something tonight. About a year ago, we actually went over the philosophy of missions in the local church. We spent several weeks on why we do missions, why do we have, why is the local church involved? We talked about even the deputation process, is that even biblical support raising? Is that biblical? We talked about a little bit of the missions experience across the world and wherever they may be. We talked about all those things, but here's some, just a very quick recap of two things. First of all, what is missions? Let's talk about that. Missions is this, missions, this is kind of my definition in a way, but kind of modified from others, but missions is the responsibility and the task of the local church to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world for the purpose of discipleship, multiplication of self -supporting, self -governing and self -propagating churches for the glory of God, okay? So as we talk about works that are eventually self -supporting, self -governing, self -propagating church, in other words, they become kind of, they're not dependent on a foreign entity per se. They have their own independence, if you will. So that is, that's one of the goals of missions, but who is a missionary? Who is a missionary? There's a song that I remember singing when I was little, be a missionary every day. I don't be a missionary every day, tell the world that Jesus is the way. I don't know if you ever heard that song or not, but the fact of the matter is that song's not true. Not everyone is called to be a missionary as a vocational missionary. Everyone is called to be an ambassador for the Lord in that regard. You represent Jesus Christ no matter where you go, but here is, this is why. Why do we say, when we talk about missions and missionaries, who is a missionary? And this is a definition here, a missionary is one called by God to full -time service of Bible study and prayer and one who crosses cultural and or geographical boundaries to proclaim the gospel in areas where Jesus Christ is largely unknown, okay? Let me slow down a little bit and read that again because there's a lot in that. A missionary is one called by God to full -time service of Bible study and prayer and then one who crosses cultural and or geographical boundaries to proclaim the gospel in areas where Jesus Christ is largely unknown. So that's when we talk about missionaries and we support a missionary and we have, like you said, we have 21. That is generally their description, okay, in those parts, so very important, okay? But one thing that we're gonna talk about tonight is this. This is a practical way. We talked earlier about in modern missions, there are a few challenges that missionaries do face and it's one that often does not, it sometimes gets talked about but it is not really thought about. What do you mean? So it's, again, this is something that's talked about but not really thought about. What is one of these challenges? And one of the challenges that missionaries often face is that of language barriers. There's cultural barriers. I think we think about, when I was in Bible college, I was a missions major and so I remember going through one of our missions classes and our professor, he said that there is three Fs in the missionary experience. The first is fascination. When a missionary gets to the field, there's a fascination. It's kind of like honeymoon period, wow, you're kind of like the tourist, you know, you take pictures of everything, buy all the souvenirs, you know, you kind of get that fascination. The second part, though, after you're there for a while, you get, it becomes frustration because you figure out, wait a minute, you stick out like a sore thumb in that culture. You don't look like, talk like, act like the culture that you're in and sometimes they don't think the way you do or, you know, respond the way you're expecting. So there's a frustration in the culture. We never got to the fourth F, or the third F, excuse me, we never got to the third F, so I have no idea what comes after frustration. He left us hanging all these years, it's been 20 some years. I have no idea what we're supposed to end up. I would say, if anything, I think there is a sense of fulfillment that you are obedient to Christ, our faithfulness, that you're there sticking out as long as God keeps you in that area. But nonetheless, language barriers is very, it's a real barrier and it's actually more, and I'll kind of break it down a little bit here in just a moment here, but language barriers is actually a very serious barrier that missionaries must take, that they must cross. And so learning another language in another culture, preferably by immersion, is something that's very challenging that a lot of missionaries face and I think this is really where you find out who's going to stick it out in missions versus who's not going to stick it out. And I'll get to that, why is that, okay? So let me ask you this, how many of you took a foreign language, whether it be in high school, college, whether it be, several of you have, okay? I jokingly say, Linnea just started a Spanish class at co -op, but I jokingly say, the high school Spanish you have, by the time you get older, you're just good enough to order at Taco Bell, you know? So speaking, practically what do you do with that? And so if you've actually learned and studied another language, like actually seriously hit the books on it and to immerse yourself in that culture if you can, is very important. But here's some quick statistics. There are, how many languages are there in the world today? How many known languages? There are over, there's about, actually this is the report as of earlier this year, January 1st, 7 ,117 known languages spoken by people around the world, according to Ethnologue. Well over 7 ,000 languages represented around the world, that's a lot, okay? So here's the next question, I'm gonna ask you this, what do you think? Which language has the most native speakers, in other words, this is their first language, their birth languages if you will, which language has the most native speakers, what do you think? Chinese, yes, absolutely, 1 .27 billion people speak Chinese as their first language, English is third down the list, okay? So anyways, you think of this Mandarin or Cantonese, okay, that's very well spoken, okay? So how much of the world's population speaks English as a first or second language, what do you think? What percentage would you say of the world's population speaks English as a first or second language? What's that? I'd say you can learn to speak English and all that.

All of them at hillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes, and Hillsdale. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt. Inside the Beltway this morning, I'm so glad you joined me. I want to talk with you about this book. David Brooks's brand new How to Know a Person, The Art of Seeing Others Deeply and Being Deeply Seen. David joins me now. Hello, David. How are you? It's good to be with you again. It's good to talk to you. David, I'm used to getting books, and I got yours for free. They get sent to me. I want to tell you I'm going to buy six copies of How to Know a Person, three for my children and their spouses, and three for friends who are no longer friends that I want them to read. I wonder if you've had other people tell you that they're going to be buying your book to give to other people. Yeah, thank you for being generous on Twitter about the book. I appreciate it. Yeah, no, I've had people buy it for all their employees. I've had people buy it for the families. I haven't heard about buying it for ex -friends, but it's a good strategy. It is. We just live in these brutalizing times. It is. And my book is supposed to be a missile directed right at that. It's about the precise skills of how do you get to know someone, how do you make them feel respected, seen, heard. How do you make them feel respected, seen, and heard? I know why my friends are not my friends anymore. It's because of Donald Trump. They thought me insufficiently outraged about Donald Trump, and I can't bridge that gap, right? I can't be other than what I am, which is I voted for him twice, and if he's the nominee, I'll vote for him again. But they don't understand it, and I don't know that they're trying to understand. I don't understand them either, but I think How to Know a Person has assisted me. So, congratulations. Let me also tell you, I told our mutual friend Bob Barnett that I was telling people about your book in Miami as I prepared for the debate, because my wife and I talked about one statistic in particular, one paragraph actually, on page 98. Thirty -six percent of Americans reported they felt lonely frequently or almost all of the time, including 61 percent of young adults, 51 percent of young mothers. The percentage of Americans who said they have no close friends quadrupled between 1990 and 2020. 54 percent of Americans reported that no one knows them well. That is an extraordinary raft of terrible news, David. Yeah, and I found it's hard to build a healthy democracy on top of a rotting society, and so when this people are filled with loneliness and sadness, it turns into meanness, because if you feel yourself unseen, invisible, there's nothing crueler than feeling that people think you don't exist, and you get angry, and you lash out, and we have these school shootings. We have bitter politics. We've got the brutality of what's happening on college campuses right now, where Jewish students are being blockaded out of classrooms or have the recipients of genocidal how to build a friendship, how to make people feel that you're included, and these are basic social skills like the kind you could be taught at like learning carpentry or tennis or something like that. It's how do you listen well, how do you disagree well, how do you sit with someone who's got depression, how do you sit with someone who's contemplating suicide, how do you sit with someone who disagrees with you fundamentally on issues, and I just try to walk through the basic skills, and in my view, there in any group of people, there are two sorts. There's diminishers, the people who stereotype ignore, they don't ask you questions, they just don't care about you, and then there's another sort of person who are illuminators, and they are curious about you, they respect you, they want to know your life story, and they make you feel lit up and heard, and my goal in writing the book was partly social, because we need these skills to be a decent society, and partly personal. I just want to be better at being an illuminator. I think it comes through in the book. I listened to your interview with Katie Couric and her colleague, who I don't know, and they were trying to get at a question a couple of times, I'm gonna try and land that plane. Why did David Brooks write this book? Well, I'll give you the personal reason. You know, some people, if anybody watched Fiddler on the Roof, you know how warm and huggy Jewish families can be. I grew up in the other kind of Jewish family, and our culture was think Yiddish, act British, so we had love in the home. We just didn't express it. We were not a huggy family. We were all cerebral up here, and then when I was 18, the admissions officers at Columbia, Wesleyan, and Brown decided to actually go to the University of Chicago, which was also a super cerebral place. My favorite thing about Chicago, it's a Baptist school where atheist professors teach Jewish students St. Thomas Aquinas, and so I went into the world of journalism where we just Frederick Buechner once put it, if you cut yourself off from true connection with others, you may save yourself a little pain because you won't be betrayed, but you're cutting yourself off from the holy sources of life itself, and so I just wanted to be better at being intimate with other people. I've heard you now three times, read in your book, heard you tell it to Katie, and heard you tell it to me, the anecdote about the University of Chicago, the anecdote about Yiddish and British, but what is new is you brought up Buechner, and I've never read Buechner. I now know his backstory, which is so tragic. You include it in the book. I did not know he had a tragic backstory that illumines his character for me, and maybe I will go and read it, but you're in interview mode. How many different book interviews have you done? Uh, probably 20 or more. I don't know a lot. You're definitely, I know what that's like, where you want to get through an interview, and you want to make sure that people, you land the point, and I want to get a little bit deeper than that. I want to find out if you're with your self -examination. There's been a David Brooks self -examination underway for a long time, but you have not yet written your book about God. Are you going to go there? Yeah, well, at the end of The Second Mountain, I wrote a book about my spiritual journey, and how I grew up, my phrase was religiously bisexual, so I grew up in a Jewish home, but I went to a church school, and I went to a church camp, so I had the story of Jesus in my God. And then when I was 50 or so, reality seemed porous to me. It seemed like we're not just a bunch of physical molecules. You know, I once, I was in subway in New York City in God's ugliest spot on the face of the earth, and I look around the subway car, and I see all these people, and I decide all these people have souls. There's some piece of them that has no size, weight, color, or shape, but gives them infinite value and dignity, and their souls could be soaring, their souls could be hurting, but all of us have them. And once you have the concept of the soul in your head, it doesn't take long before the concept of God is in your head. And so I went off, especially about 10 years ago, and it's still going on a spiritual journey of just trying to figure out what do I believe? And I learned when you're on a journey like that, Christians give you books, and so I got like 700 books sent to me, only 350 of which were different copies of Christianity by C .S. Lewis. And so that was my journey. And it didn't, it was very slow and gradual. There were some dramatic moments, but not a lot. But I realized, oh, I'm not an atheist anymore, and my heart has opened up to something. And I think this book is the extension of that. When your heart opens up to God, and if every person you meet, you think this person was made in the image of God, I'm looking at somebody so important, Jesus was willing to die for that person, then I've got to show them the respect that God would show them. I've got to try to see them with the eyes that Jesus would see them with. And that's a super high standard that I'm not going to meet, but it's a goal. And Jesus says, even in brutal, tough times, He sees people, He sees the poor. And the main thing He does is Jesus is always asking questions. Somebody asks Him a question, He asks them a question back. And that act of questioning, what you do for a living, that's a show of respect. And that's the doorway to seeing someone. And so to me, I think questions are a moral act that we're phenomenal at when we're kids. And then we get a little worse at it. And I come sometimes leave a party and think that whole time nobody asked me a question. And I've come to think like only 30 % of the people in the world are question askers. And so part of the thing I do in the book is just try to say, here are some generous things to do to ask people questions. It is a, that is the key takeaway, how to ask questions. And this is a skill set. I sent a note this morning to my friend, Jan Janur, who has been running a Christian ministry for 30 years called The Wild Adventure. He wrote a book called Turning Small Talk into Big Talk. And I was reminded of it. Yours is a longer, more complicated examination of the art of asking questions and why you want to do so. It's also, it reminded me a lot of C .S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory. You have never met an ordinary human being. Everyone is an eternal horror, an everlasting splendor, and you believe that and you get to it. And I want to talk about how one gets there, but I want to begin, interestingly enough, with a comment Katie Couric made you. And I listened to that yesterday. I'd finished your book last week and I made my notes last night. And then I listened to Katie Couric interview. She spontaneously brought up her interview with Sarah Palin. Why do you think she did that, David? I like Katie a lot. And she's been a guest on my show. I loved her memoir, at least the first two thirds of it, which was about her younger life, which I thought was fascinating. Why do you think she brought up the Sarah Palin interview? I was also struck by that because I don't think she talks about it enough. I know Katie from various things and I don't think she talks about it all that much. I think it was a time when she was asking questions and somebody just wasn't answering. It was a time when she was having a miscommunication. I imagine that's why she wrote up. Do you have another theory? I do. I think it's because she's been misunderstood because of that question and that she wants people who only know Katie Couric because of that question to know that that's not Katie Couric. And that, to me, it was it made perfect sense she used to be known. And that's the central theme of this. People want to be seen. They want to be known. And if you are known for the wrong thing, in this case, the Katie Couric Sarah Palin interview, you want to you want to get that off your cargo ship, right? You want that unloaded. And I thought, wow, you really the book worked on her. Let me tell you also, on page 134, you talk about face experiments with infants. I want them outlawed. David, what did you think when you read it? I think those are cruel and awful. Tell people about them. Yeah, so babies come out of the womb wanting to be seen. Baby's eyes, they see everything 18 inches away in sharpness. Everything else is kind of blurry because they want to see mom's face. And these experiments that you referred to are called still face experiments. The babies send a bid for attention. And the moms are instructed, don't respond, just be still face. And in the beginning, the babies are uncomfortable. And then after a few seconds, they start writhing around. And five within seconds, they're in total agony, because nobody is seeing them. And I really don't think that's that much different as adults. I think when we're unseen, it is just total agony. We're rendered invisible. And that's what I encounter in my daily life as a reporter. I used to go to the Midwest. I live on the East Coast, but I spent a lot of time in the Midwest. And maybe 10, 15 years ago, once a day, somebody would say, you guys think we're flyover country. In the last five years, I hear that like 10 times a day. And so a lot of just people feel they're invisible. And frankly, that's a little on my profession, the media. When I started as a police reporter in Chicago, we had working class folks in the newsroom. Our reporters, they hadn't gone to college. They were just regular people from Chicago, and they covered crime alongside me. Now, if you go to newsrooms, especially in New York, DC, LA, San Francisco, it's not only everybody went to college, everyone went to the same like 15 elite colleges, and a lot of the same prep schools. So if you're not in this little group, and you look at the national media, and you don't see yourself, it's as if they're telling you your voice doesn't matter. You don't exist. And that's a form of dehumanization that we've allowed to fester in this country. And of course, people are going to lash out. Yeah, I just spent two weeks with really wonderful professionals at NBC preparing for this debate. And at one point, I asked one of my colleagues in this exercise, I don't work for NBC, how many people do you think in this room voted for Trump? And taken aback, they did not answer because the answer is obvious. Nobody. And if if your newsroom is full of 100 % people not only didn't vote for Trump, but actually loathe them, you can't cover the country. It's impossible because you're not seeing the other 50%. And what your book is, I hope the newsroom is distributed as well. We are all about seeing people who have long been marginalized, and that is important. But if you don't see people who are supporting Donald Trump, for whatever reason, you can't cover the news. Let me ask you about this Philip Lewis fellow. I love him, because he finally gave me the courage to teach the do the Dormant Commerce Clause in the 11th Amendment with the confidence that even though my students are terribly bored, they have to know this. Where did you meet Philip Lewis? Because he's talking to teachers. Teachers need to read this book too, if only to be comforted in the fact that every teacher has this experience.
A highlight from What David Learned at Solana Breakpoint
"Bankless Nation, welcome to David's Takes. David's Takes is a semi -regular segment on Bankless where I write an article for the Bankless newsletter and I read it to you here on the Bankless podcast for all of you out there like me who can't read or just prefer audio content. This take is everything I learned at Solana Breakpoint. Dear Bankless Nation, I just returned from my fifth and last conference tour of 2024. The pursuit of knowledge, relationships, and experiences takes me to some interesting places all over the world and I am blessed that I'm able to turn my travels into interesting content for you, the Bankless Nation. This last tour was a little bit different than my typical crypto conference endeavors. For the first time ever, I went to a non -Ethereum conference and I'm not talking about a generalist conference like Permissionless, which covers the entire industry, I went to Solana Breakpoint, which is produced by the Solana Foundation, much like how DevConnect or DevCon is organized by the Ethereum Foundation. It's hard for me to get a sense of reality these days as Elon continually changes the Twitter algorithm and the internet meta has shown the exploitability of Web2 platforms to optimize for engagement. As someone with deep ties to the Ethereum community, my only perceptions of Solana is through Twitter, which is a terrible lens for viewing anything these days and especially in crypto, where tribes continually defy in the arena of crypto Twitter to distort perception to their favor.
A highlight from 196 - 10 Timeless Lessons for Crypto Investors With Morgan Housel
"Look, I'm a very optimistic guy, but the answer is no, there's absolutely no hope whatsoever. I would bet so heavily that 100 years from now we're going to have bubbles that would look exactly like they did in 1999 and exactly like they would have during the housing bubble. Pick your bubble 100 years from now, 200 years from now, that's going to be the case. Welcome to Bankless, where we explore the frontier of internet money and internet finance. This is how to get started, how to get better, how to front run the opportunity. This is Ryan John Adams, and I'm here with David Hoffman, and we're here to help you become more bankless. Guys, a lot has changed in crypto throughout the cycles, but some things haven't. We're here to talk about the things that haven't changed. We've got timeless investing wisdom applied to crypto from writer and investor Morgan Housel on today's episode. So a few different things you need to know for different parts of the cycle. We've got lessons for the bear market, lessons for the bull market, and lessons for the apathy market. A few takeaways for you. Number one, why the bear market was painful, necessary, and yet good. Number two, why those that survived the bear market now have an advantage. Number three, how to manage your brain during a bull market when things get frothy. Number four, how to actually be happy no matter how much wealth you have. Number five, the traps that you're going to fall into during the bull market, unless you know how to spot them well in advance. Number six, optimism versus pessimism, how to balance them to become a better investor. David, I could have been like listed 10 more of these because I feel like the insights per minute on this episode today were absolutely off the charts. We put in the title 10 timeless lessons for crypto, but the truth is there's probably like a hundred here. There's like too many to count and we didn't really count them. What's the significance of this episode for you? I think the most significant thing about this episode is the timing in which Morgan's book just happened to come out along with all of the bullishness that's coming out of the crypto space. We are about to enter a time in which the bull market beer goggles are on and we need advice like this to merge into our brain and have deep understanding of as we navigate that bull market because this is when the time in the market in which this advice is the hardest to follow, yet it is going to have the most ROI if you can follow it. This is like trying to flex your brain muscle, your diligence, your own discipline as an investor. And so like listen to this episode, write notes, listen to it twice, do something that you need to do to merge this information into your brain because it will save you multiples of your portfolio as you navigate the bull market. It is timeless wisdom. It's wealth generation strategy is wealth preservation. And it's also, I would say just like the perfect Ryan and David episode, one part investing, one part psychology. Like I said, just the timing of it all. I think it is perfect. Yeah. The wise investor wins. The disciplined investor wins. I think this is even truer in crypto than it is in traditional markets, actually, David. And so we hope you enjoyed this episode with Morgan Housel. He'll be right on. We're going to begin in a minute, but before we do, we want to thank the sponsors that made this possible, including the venue in which you could practice all of this timeless crypto wisdom.

We had Morgan on a year ago to talk about the principles in his book called the psychology of money. I got it right behind me on the bookshelf. I don't know if you could see it guys. It's one of the best investing books that I've read in the last decade. And that episode is my recommendation for one of our top 10 must listen to episodes for crypto investors, particularly if you're starting on the bankless journey. But today, Morgan brought some new timeless advice for us because he's just published a new book. It's called the same as ever. And this is a guide to what never changes. It's a series of 23 punchy stories, timeless truths about people, societies and how to live. This, my friends, is important wisdom as we go into the crypto bull market. Morgan, welcome to Bankless. Welcome back, I should say. Yeah, Ryan, David, thanks for having me. Looking forward to it. I mean, let's start with the theme of this book. Why are you focusing on stuff that's the same? Isn't the same stuff boring? Like, why not new things? It is boring, which is why we don't pay attention to it. But that's always at our own detriment. So I've been a financial writer for going on 18 years now. And a big part of that journey and what I've written about was just how like frustrated, cynical, disgruntled I became at how bad the entire industry was at forecasting the next bear market, the next recession, like anything, no matter what it was. I mean, here's one little example of this that I was thinking about this morning. I remember I'm pretty sure it was in Fortune magazine. It was one of the big business magazines. They published an article in 1999 that was 10 stocks for the decade ahead. It was like 10 safe blue chip stocks that like you can count on for the decade ahead. And I swear it was Enron, AIG, Kodak. It was like go down the list of the companies that went out of business. This is one like everyone knows how bad the community is, not just the media community, but economists, financial advisors, analysts, portfolio managers, and predicting what's going to happen next. So there's two things you can do with that realization. You can become even more angry about it and just a fatalist and say, nobody knows anything. Don't even try. Or you can say, what does never change? We have no ability to predict what is going to change. That's probably too blanket of a statement, but it rounds to that for most people. But if you look across economic history, and not just economic history, but a lot of history, it's the same behaviors over and over and over again. It's like how we respond to greed and fear and risk and uncertainty that never changes. And if you read about financial crises from 100 years ago, 200 years ago, it's the same thing. It's the same thing over and over and over again. So then I was like, well, let's just focus on that. Let's just focus on what we know is never going to change. I have no idea when the next bear market is going to come, but I know exactly how people are going to respond to it and what they're going to think about it and how they're going to feel, because that's never changed. So that was kind of where it came into play for me, was just starting with a frustration and then saying, okay, well, what's the positive way out of that observation rather than just becoming more of a cynic? Morgan, if I can make a prediction about the content that we were about to discuss, there's that old quip of one fish swims past the other and says, how's the water? I think the fish replies, what's water? Implying that there are so many things that happen so frequently that we just can't identify it. I think the Bankless version of this was like our first few episodes was about identifying money because it's such an invisible force that we never really approach and attack head on, that when you do, your brain opens up and all of a sudden there's a world that's expanded to you. I feel like that's about what we're about to get with you in a variety of different lessons. There are so many fundamental about truths the way that the world works that we just are not awoke to because of how like default they are, how common denominator that are. That's my prediction about this. And here's what I love about this. I've been pretty open. I'm not a crypto investor. I'm not a crypto, you know, completely negative. It's all going to hell. It's all a joke. I'm not that person either. But here's why I think that doesn't matter in this. And this is the same for psychology and money. The overlap between the behaviors among a crypto investor versus an index fund investor versus a mutual like a municipal bond investor. There's a lot of overlap there. How people respond to greed, fear, risk, uncertainty, it's all the same. And so much of what I've loved about the kind of research that I get to do is I'm a financial writer, but actually don't read or research that much about finance. I love reading about all kinds of different history, all kinds of different fields and recognizing when those behaviors in medicine or military or like physics or take any field and seeing how they respond to these topics applies perfectly to investing. Morgan, so another thought I have, you were talking about your frustration. You decided to channel that frustration with all of the, you know, noise in the finance industry into a book, The Psychology of Money, and now kind of this book. I still predict that people like you, people like me, maybe people like David, people who are listening to this advice and this wisdom and actually applying it will still continue to be frustrated because I think we are still in the minority of people who are actually applying these lessons. So I'm zooming out. Crypto is probably about to enter a next bull market. And Morgan, I guarantee you, we are going to make many of the exact same mistakes we made in the previous bull market and we're going to do it over and over and looking at this and you're like, it's going to happen again, isn't it? We're going to do the exact same thing. Is there any hope in this book of breaking us out of that cycle or is the hope only at the individual level that an individual can kind of wake up and be like, Hey, I don't have to do this. I can see all the other dumb humans repeating the same mistakes, but I don't have to do it. Or is there hope that we could actually break this cycle as kind of a society, as an industry, as a, you know, a market? Look, I'm a very optimistic guy, but the answer is no, there's absolutely no hope whatsoever.
A highlight from Heroes
"If you have your Bibles today would you turn with me to 1 Corinthians 1 26 through the end of the chapter and I was thinking today on heroes in honor of our Remembrance Day there are blessings to any country that will make the God of the Bible their God and abide by his truths as laid out in the Scriptures. These truths though initially sated by David towards Israel can apply to us as Gentiles as if we're obedient to them and Psalm 33 12 blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord and the people whom we have chosen for his own inheritance and the truth is there are great blessings in being a child of God. I understand this if you know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior we are entered into the promises and blessings of Abraham and we will enter into that lineage so that's a blessing there. I was thinking of a hero, a hero is a man or a woman of distinguished valor or enterprise in danger or fortitude in suffering a prominent or central personage in any remarkable action or event hence a great or illustrious person. A little further on this a pastor and author recently wrote that our society has lost the meaning of the word hero he said that we think that if an athlete can put a ball through a hoop they're a hero. If a musician can play eight chords on a guitar they're considered a hero and if an actor can pretend to be something they are not they're considered a hero in Hollywood. This pastor wrote I remember watching a well -known journalist interview an actor about his recent movie which featured a politically troubled region of the world. The journalist asked the celebrity what he thought should be done about the political situation there the actor responded who cares what I think and went on to point out that he was an actor. This pastor said real heroes are people who actually do something sacrificial or courageous he points out that God does not seek out heroes to accomplish his purposes God isn't looking for a strong man or woman per se rather he's looking for someone whom he can be strong on behalf of. Amen end quotes there and that came by Jim Sandel but I think about some other heroes of the past. One of the heroes that rates highly in my mind is John Wycliffe. He continued his reforming attempts and particularly began the very significant step of translating and writing out the New Testament in English a radical step as it brought the Gospels close to the ordinary person who could not understand Latin and remove the church which would be the Catholic Church at that time as the interpreter having God's Word available to the public in the language of the common man English would have meant disaster to that church no longer would they control access to the scriptures if people were able to read the Bible in their own tongue the church's income and power would crumble they could not possibly continue to get away with self indulgences which is the forgiveness of sins or selling the release of loved ones from a church manufactured purgatory people would begin to challenge the church's authority if the church were exposed as frauds and thieves the contradictions between what God's Word said and what the priests taught would open the public's eye and the truth would set them free from the grip of fear that the institutional church held salvation through faith not works or donations would be understood the need for priests would vanish through the priesthood of all believers the veneration of church canonized saints and Mary would be called into question the availability of scriptures in English was the biggest threat imaginable to the wicked church neither side would give up without a fight end quotes John Jeffcoat English Bible history as he recounts the history of the Bible through the centuries now when we really consider the idea of a hero or a person to whom we characterize as a hero whether secular or sacred we think of men and women who've denied themselves for a greater cause this cause they saw worth fighting for much to their own detriment much to their own adversity and they may have thought with or without weapons those who go to war for the country do so out of duty and the heroes are not just those who died but those who have stood tall in the face of evil the Christian hero is the person who does not stand out in front of and herald their greatness or absorb the plazas of men rather it is the person who's faithful to Christ irrespective of the dangers they were called to encounter behind all of these feats these harrowing feats and these determinative there actions lies a person an ordinary person like you and I whose love for Christ I'm speaking of Christians as heroes particular Christians to whom Christ was preeminent in their life now may we not seek to be heroes may we just seek to be faithful until the day we breathe our last it is an attitude that has gained much applause respect of others of the heroes of the faith Hebrews chapter 11 we'll deal with that passage tonight here in 1 Corinthians chapter 1 verse 26 for you see your calling brethren how that not many wise men after the flesh not many mighty not many noble are called but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty and base things of the world and things which are despised that God chosen yea and things which are not to bring to not things that are why does he do this the no flesh and glory in his presence but of him are you in Christ Jesus who of God has made unto us wisdom and righteous and sanctification and redemption that according as it is written he that gloria let him glory in the Lord you think about the ones to whom Jesus decided to use as apostles tax fishermen collectors everyday citizens these were not of your upper elites now I understand there was Luke who wrote the book of Luke and he was a very intelligent man it was a doctor Paul an apostle was also very intelligent but overall God would use some fisherman with sometimes some very sour attitudes cranky attitudes he would use a tax collector who was hate noted as being a scoundrel in communities God would use these men to turn the world upside down they weren't some theological pinnacle of excellence the only pinnacle of excellence in their lives would be obedience to Christ but yet while Christ lived they forsook Christ at the moment he most needed them it's not about us it's about Christ you think about Revelation chapter 2 verse 10 as he tells the Church of Smyrna be thou faithful unto death and I will give thee a crown of life first Peter chapter 5 verse 6 humble yourselves therefore into the mighty hand of God that he may exalt you in due time and we still talk about those 12 apostles today Judas we obviously don't talk about in a positive light but we talk about the Apostles in a positive light men who hazard of their life for Jesus Christ and turn the world upside down and you and I might think I could never do anything great for God because it's not about you it's about the God that we worship I want to look at three qualities today of a true biblical hero it's an interesting study may we seek to be devoted not promoted and there are so often times in Christian up does in Christianity pandering a to elevate an individual it's not about elevating an individual it's about elevating Jesus Christ heroes who are heroes those on the battlefield are everyday men and women who answer the call to go to war they go to war they learn all that they need to they go to war and they perish sometimes but they're like every one of us same flesh and blood I trust today that we would seek as verse 31 says he that glory let him glory no Lord let's pray dear only father Lord I love you Lord Jesus I yield the state of thee God I pray that you'd work in my lips my thoughts to preach your word faithfully I pray that we would be found worthy more than pleasing to thee would help us to be an example to others behind us of faithful Christianity it doesn't matter how we started our life doesn't matter all the turmoil of what we've done in our lives but God may we be faithful found faithful into death Lord Jesus I yield this time to thee I thank you for being our gracious Savior in your name I pray amen.

"Beautiful. Jesse, I was drumming right along with you. Thank you and thank you team. Thank you, Kate. It's good to sing. Sweetheart, we feel right at home here, don't we? Thanks for your pastoral prayer wherever you are. It's just heartwarming to be with another body. It's like there's a spiritual knitting together. If you're in Great Falls, you'll come and visit us but so glad for a church home here in a city that also means Christ, like those in Poland. Amen. Psalm 96, the 96 Psalm. I'm so thankful that Shane and Jesse have invited us over. The elders have invited us over to have gotten to know a few of you. Brooke, thanks for your musical gifts too, wherever you are. Just to shake a few of your hands, I was able to snag a membership directory that'll help many of me remember you by name and by face. Lord willing, if we get to come back and visit you again someday. I understand you've been regularly working through an exposition of the Gospel of John. It's wonderful and I would like to be here just to sit under Pastor Shane's preaching someday. But this morning we turn to another jewel in God's Word and God's Word's full of them, isn't it? Just a treasure trove of diamonds to divide and cut our soul and spirit joint and marrow, judge the thoughts and intentions of our heart. A date and author is not attached to Psalm 96, though it closely matches 1 Chronicles 16, 23 through 33. That was sung by the temple choirs as the ark was being brought by David back into Jerusalem and to Zion. Why have I chose Psalm 96? Why did we arrive at the 96 Psalm? I just got to tell you, there's a lot of personal reflection in this Psalm for me. I happened to be up on a mountain maybe a month and a half ago and finally got into service. I was, as I mentioned earlier, stewarding God's creation by a hunting. And I got a text from our senior pastor saying, hey, I'm pulled up sick. Can you preach for me on Sunday? And I knew I wasn't gonna be back until Saturday night. I did have my Bible. I did have my computer up at the cabin, though I was way off the grid, just where I wanted to be for a couple days. And I thought, when am I going to preach on Sunday? I didn't have to think for long. Psalm 96 had been welling up in my heart for not weeks or days, or even months, but I think for a year I've been thinking on this Psalm and I hope you can see why in a little bit. Our families work to memorize this Psalm. It has been synonymous with our thinking about Poland. I'm not going to include much about Poland in my exposition of Psalm 96, but I think you'll understand why this Psalm means so much to our family in this season. Follow along as I read from the 96th Psalm. Oh, sing to the Lord a new song. Sing to the Lord all the earth. Sing to the Lord, bless his name. Tell of his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works amongst all the peoples. For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised. He is to be feared among all gods. For the gods of the people are worthless idols, but Yahweh made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before him. Strength and beauty are in his sanctuary. Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the people, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name. Bring an offering and come into his courts. Worship Yahweh in the splendor of holiness. Tremble before him all the earth.
A highlight from ROLLUP: The Bull Market is On | Ethereum ETF | Near Layer2
"Bankless Nation, it is the second Friday of November. David, tell them what time it is. Oh, it's bull market time, Ryan. It's a bull market. It's a bull market. It's also, what's up? This is a special edition of the weekly roll up. And you told me not to ruin this title, this theme for you. So I'm not going to do it. Go, you say it. It's the, we are so back edition of the Friday bankless weekly roll up where we cover all the weekly news in crypto, especially focusing on the markets this week because God candles are happening. Coins are moving. We're getting the double digit price movements. Markets are alive. And NFTs are no exception to that. Everything is up. Every single listener of this podcast has more money today than they had last week. So congratulations. Pat yourself on the back. I declare that we made it. We made it through the pair. We made it. The bear's over. You're saying it? It's official now? It's official. All right. Well, so everybody is up on the week, except for those, those few Fiat Maximists. Except for the short sellers who are idiots. Do you think any Fiat Maximus and short sellers listen to bankless? How dare they? Just hate listens. Hate views, hate listens. Guys, in addition to the markets though, we've got a few other questions that we're asking. I'm going to rattle them off. Did BlackRock just file for a new spot? Eth ETF is near moving to Ethereum. Did Elizabeth Warren apologize for lying about crypto? I bet you can guess that last one. There's so many questions today. There's a lot of excitement going into the episode. David, before we get in, want to shout out our friends and sponsors over at Linea. They are inviting the bankless nation to go on a voyage. This is a DeFi voyage, a crypto voyage, because they have a new ZK EVM that you absolutely have to check out if you want to pioneer the frontier. David, tell them about Linea and what is the voyage? The voyage is six weeks of 10 ways of activity, 10 core tasks, some optional bonus tasks as well, with over 60 DeFi apps all to engage with. Why would you engage with them? Well, you know the points mechanism. FriendTech did this. They're giving out points. Linea XP, Voyage XP, is like a game, non -transferable ERC20 token that you accrue for going on the Linea voyage. So there is a link in the show notes to explore what is a new ZK EVM layer two on the scene. So you can collect some Linea XP by doing the Linea voyage. There's a link in the show notes. I think this is where we're going to spend the bull market, David, is on roll -ups and layer twos because Ethereum gas fees are going up, my friends. Oh, they are not low. We got to migrate. We got to migrate, but let's talk about the markets. All right, these charts look so beautiful today. This is the Kraken Bitcoin chart from Kraken Pro. And look at this candle up, this big green candle, followed by a candle down a little bit, but I'm still happy because it's still up. Tell me about this candle, what's going on? What's the price on the week? Yeah, Bitcoin started the week at 34 ,600, trying desperately to get its head back above 35 ,000 and not fall resistance to that, not fall back down. And then it just like blasted through right before we started recording, touched ,000 $38 going from right below $35 ,000 where it's been all week to $38 ,000. It is now at the time of recording at 36 ,500. So coming back a little bit, but 36 ,500 is real nice. Really, really nice. It's really nice. And this is the highest Bitcoin has been. I mean, I'm just scrolling out on the Kraken chart here. Like 24 months, how long has it been? I got to keep scrolling. It's been a very long time. You can't keep scrolling because your candles are one hour candles. So if you go up to the top one day, yeah, this is how you use Kraken charts. How I trade. Okay, yeah. Here we go. So look at the line, see where it intersects. May of 2022. Okay, so we killed the FTX liquidation. Bitcoin replaced that pretty early, in early 2023. And then halfway through 2023, we erased the three arrows capital liquidation. So three arrows capital is now in a distant memory. Those are no longer relevant parts of the market. And we are in process of finalizing the removal of the Terra Luna dump, which happened in May of 2022. We're almost there. I think if we just get maybe up to back, if we hold $38 ,000, Terra Luna is in the rear view mirror. It's also the season where you're starting to get, you're gonna start to get text messages from your friends and family. You have? My very dormant crypto chat that was dominant throughout 2020 and 2021 is now like, oh, we're back, baby.

That's legacy PM investments dot com. Welcome to the Eric Metaxas show. I shouldn't tell you this, but Eric hired someone who sounds just like him to host today's show. But since I'm the announcer, they told me, so I'm telling you, don't be fold. The real Eric's in jail. Folks, welcome to our two final segment with our friend John's Mirack, who you can follow on my twitter feed. John, um, you said a lot of things. This is the article that you wrote at the stream. What's the title of the article? It's stream dot org. The title is Israel must act alone and we must step out of the way. Okay, so let me play devil's advocate. Sure. Um, but before I do that, I'll do something along those lines. Not quite devil's advocate, but you were praising the Abrahamic accords that Donald Trump managed to pull off during his administration, which was a, uh, diplomatic masterpiece, foreign policy coup. Now you have to give Jared Kushner a lot of credit for that, even though you're not a fan of his, uh, in terms of his domestic policy influence. Right, right. Um, yeah, I'm not a fan of Jared. I have said that if Donald Trump wants a second term in office, he should be forced. He should force Ivanka to divorce Jared and marry Steve Bannon. I've not heard that. I stand by that. Brilliant. Absolutely. He's still single. He's he's in his 60s. He is single. He is not, he is not directly on board with this proposal. Um, I have not asked Steve what he thinks about it. Frankly. I don't care. It would be like one of those diplomatic marriages that the Habsburgs had, you know, you have to marry princess of Asturias. I know she's a hunchback dwarf and she is your first cousin twice over, but this is a necessity of state. So I want to hold the empire together. I want the Ivanka Steve Bannon wedding. Um, and I would happily attended be the ring. I'd like to be the ring bearer dressed as a court dwarf, but that's, but, but I digress slightly. Uh, it was a brilliant foreign policy coup by a very prudent and responsible Trump administration. I a lot of my friends support Trump because of all the peace, prosperity and patriotism. I'm fine with all that, but really I was just in it for the mean tweets. I it's our favorite part about Donald Trump, the mean tweets. What I'm saying is I'm using that to highlight the fact that people like David French and Rod Dreher and Russell Moore all said, we couldn't, we cannot support Donald Trump. Look at the mean tweets and oh, the slaughter in Israel, the war in Ukraine, chaos on our borders. These are the results of sniffy prissy, weak Christians saying, oh, I find these tweets on winsome. I simply, I cannot exist in the same political party as someone who says things like that is what the result is slaughter in Israel. The result is slaughter in Ukraine, your prissy -ness, your delicate refined sensibilities that led you to have contempt for the Jericho march, have contempt for the January six demonstrators. Uh, it has real world consequences. You never Trump Republicans who undermined our efforts to challenge the 2020 election fraud. You have the blood on your hands of the war in Ukraine. That wouldn't have happened if Trump were in office of the Afghan translators who were slaughtered by the Taliban, which wouldn't have happened if Trump were in office and of the slaughter in Israel, which wouldn't have happened if Trump were in office. The blood is on your prissy little manicured hands. And there's plenty more, uh, if you want to talk blood on your hands, the open border with, I mean, again, even talking about this, I, I, Bonanza for child sex traffic, I'm going to weep or scream or cry. When I think about the fact that young people, ladies and gentlemen, think about this, think about this, that the Biden administration, this is true. We're not making this up. They changed the policy so that, uh, we have men bringing young women and boys across the test right now under Biden, think of the satanic evil. They are allowed to say, Oh, this is my nephew, or this is my niece, or this is whatever it is. And they take them into the country. These children, children are being raped and our government turns a blind eye. I can't think of anything more wicked and sick. And so when people say, Oh, I can't vote for Donald Trump, you better understand God will judge you because that is happening because of your action, because of your inaction, that's a reality. And people sometimes act. It's like, it's like people saying I cannot in conscience support Samson. So I cannot support Samson. I have to allow the Philistines to overrun Israel and destroy the temple and Institute child sacrifice because Samson's manners are not winsome. He's not a good representative of the gospel. I feel that my Christian witness is impugned by being associated with Samson. Cause not, let's face it, Donald Trump is Samson and Delilah is the establishment Republicans. Mickey Haley is Delilah. And she keeps. Have you written an article of using this, uh, this, uh, that's tomorrow's article. You're serious because I thought that's, that's really interesting. I'm the way I say it is the next election is Barabbas versus Samson. Joe Biden is the Barabbas that the mob chooses over Jesus. And Samson is the shampling guy who shoots himself in the foot and lets people lie to him and makes mistakes because he's flawed. He's not Jesus. He's Samson though. And I'll take Samson over Barabbas any day. But when Donald Trump, uh, ate honey, uh, out of a carcass of a lion by the very cool, that, that just ended it for me. I said, I cannot vote for a man that's why I didn't vote. I wrote David French in, uh, because I, I thought that that was the moral thing to do. I like to think of myself as the jawbone of an ass that Donald Trump used to kill a lot of frequency. That's good. That's good right there. I like, uh, I'm going to like the John story.

That is one of the key tips. So I go through exactly what to do. So you can turn your body into a lean, mean, fat burning machine where you can burn fat all night while you're sleeping. And I go through exactly how to optimize your sleep to get the best results. So you guys are going to get a lot out of this podcast.

Leave a five star review. That helps us reach more people and impact more lives with this message. Thank you so much for doing that and thank you for being a part of our community. Let's go into the show. So what's the best time to burn fat? Well, would you believe it's actually at night while we're sleeping. And we all want to be burning fat while we sleep. However, there are many individuals that are not able to, and that's because they have higher levels of insulin. You see, insulin is a key hormone that your pancreas produces to get sugar out of the bloodstream and put it into the cells, muscle cells as well as the fat cells. And a lot of people, because of how they eat and how they live, they have insulin resistance and they have higher levels of insulin. And if your insulin is elevated at night, you are going to store fat and not burn fat. So we really need to get insulin down. In fact, there's like a threshold kind of a line that if insulin is above that line, you're storing fat. If it drops below that line, you're burning fat. So from a nutrition perspective, there are certain things we do in order to get insulin down, things like a lower carbohydrate diet, high in protein that will help stabilize your blood sugar and your insulin levels. Also things like intermittent fasting can be really helpful. Exercise can be really helpful. But sleep is really just as critical. And here are five key things we want to do to help set us up for the best night's sleep so we can really optimize our fat burning. So the first thing is food timing. And so we talked a little bit about what we need to eat. I talked about a lower carbohydrate diet. Get rid of the ultra processed foods and the high carbohydrate foods and said, really try to prioritize protein and healthy fats, but also timing our meals is really critical. We know that when at night, when when there's no sun in the sky, our bodies producing more melatonin and we are more insulin resistant, meaning that our body is not going to respond to insulin as well. Our cells are not going to open their door. Our insulin is kind of like a key opening the cellular door. They're not going to be as responsive. Therefore, our body is going to produce more insulin when we eat food at night. So the best thing we can do from a food timing perspective is eat during the day. During the day, we have more insulin sensitivity. Therefore, we're going to be able to burn fat more effectively. We're going to be able to utilize, get insulin down. Right. And not utilize quite as much insulin. And therefore, at night, we're going to have lower levels of insulin so we can burn fat. So food timing is key. Eat during the daylight hours. Eat a lower carbohydrate diet, high in protein, high in healthy fats. Make sure you got fiber polyphenols from colorful fruits and vegetables in there. If you do that, you're getting the the food timing down. One of the worst things you can do for fat burning is eat a big meal late at night. When you eat a big meal late at night, your digestive juices are not working as well. You're not producing as much stomach acid, biopancreatic enzymes. Food will get in your gut. It will kind of sit there, rot and putrify, create more endotoxins, drive up inflammation in your body. You're not going to be able to move the carbohydrates. Your body's going to produce insulin, but it's not going to be able to move the carbohydrates into the cells as effectively so you have higher insulin. So you're storing fat and promoting inflammation. So eat during the day. That's food timing. Second thing is really just as important, light exposure timing. So light, just like food, food is information for the cells of our body. Light is as well. So certain types of light we want to avoid at night. Certain types of light we want to get during the day. And the way that this works is that early in the day, we want to get a lot of bright light. So going out, watching the sunrise, going out and getting bright light around the middle of the day, that actually helps set our circadian rhythm and it tells our brain, okay, it's daytime right now. Therefore, we want to make sure we've got different excitatory neurotransmitters, things like dopamine, norepinephrine, cortisol elevated to some degree and that actually gives us more energy, more wakefulness. It helps us with fat burning during the day, helps us with really just having great energy and mental clarity throughout the day. But then as we get in the evening and we get near sunset, we want to make sure that we get rid of all of that bright, what we call blue light. Get rid of that. In fact, as we get near sunset, you should dim all the lights, turn off lights or dim lights in your house. The only kind of light that you might want to have a little bit of would be like an orange type of light, almost mimicking a fire. Our ancestors, if they were exposed to any kind of light in the evening or at night, it was fire. It was sunset, which is more red light as well as fire and that has less of a melatonin reducing effect. When we're exposed to bright lights at night, we block our melatonin production and melatonin is this critical hormone that helps with sleep, helps with setting our circadian rhythm so we get really good deep sleep, deep fat burning sleep at night, but also it actually acts as a really powerful antioxidant that gets into our mitochondria, goes through both membranes of our mitochondria, cleans out oxidative stress and the healthier our mitochondria are, the better we're going to be at fat burning. So having optimal levels of melatonin at night helps you burn fat all throughout the day as well as at night. So making sure that you're not being exposed to bright lights at night helps you burn fat more effectively. So dim all your lights. You might have a little bit of lighting on in your house and then you can wear something like this. If you're going to be on electronics, if you're going to be watching TV on your computer, something like that, these are called blue light blocking glasses. So they make everything look orange and that actually blocks out the bright lights. So if you are on your device, which isn't, I don't, I don't recommend that, but you know, all of us do that at some degree in the evenings. Make sure you got those blue light blocking glasses on. That's going to help reduce any sort of melatonin inhibition and set you up for a really good night's sleep. And then in your bedroom, make sure that you've got it as dark as possible. You can wear things like a sleep mask. We'll talk more about that when we get down to here, sleep hygiene, but light exposure timing, key bright light during the day, no bright light at night as darkness, as much darkness as possible. In fact, you know, some researchers say in our society, we have a darkness deficiency. I mean, think about it like a nutrient, like being vitamin D deficient. We know that affects our immune system. That affects our ability to burn fat. It affects our brain function and development. Well, having a deficiency in darkness as well, we'll have a lot of, a lot of problems for our body. We'll throw off our circadian rhythm, our ability to burn fats or metabolic health or immune health or cognitive health. So getting that darkness is critical. I just want to interrupt this podcast to tell you about my favorite brain boosting tool. It's actually a delicious chocolate fudge. I know that sounds crazy, but this isn't your average fudge.

A highlight from Bankless Takes | Solana vs Ethereum
"Welcome to Bankless Bytes, a new weekly show out of Bankless, a little like the weekly roll -up, but more opinions, less news, closer to touching on the conversations that are going around crypto of the week, or really whatever me and Ryan want to talk about. If you don't like our opinions, this show is probably not for you, unfiltered, sometimes wrong, always fun, three to five topics every single week trying to get it under 30 minutes, always an ambitious endeavor. This is our first rodeo on this show. So this show will change and adapt, but the idea of the show is to be pretty raw and uncut, no filter. Ryan, what are we talking about this week? We got four topics of the week, David. Number one, I want to talk to you about Bankless Breakpoints, okay? Actually, Bankless showed up at Breakpoints and you went, and a lot of people were upset about that. How dare you? Other people liked it. Yeah, also Solana versus Ethereum, that has been the subject this week. All over crypto Twitter. And I think that's where we're getting inspiration from the show, honestly, it's like things that people are talking about on crypto Twitter that we've got talks about. And speaking of that, we got to do a feelings check in because you are disappointed with somebody this week. I believe you have some disappointment with Chris Bernitsky. I want to unpack that. I want to see where that comes from, get into the kind of emotional layer of that. David's disappointed with dad.
A highlight from 15 Authors of Titles on THR's List of the 100 Greatest Film Books of All Time
"Please welcome to the stage President and CEO of the American Film Institute, Bob Guzzale. Phone rings. It's Scott Feinberg from The Hollywood Reporter. He has an idea. And he's thinking about celebrating the 100 greatest film books of all time. I am immediately offended because top 100 movie lists are the AFI's real estate. But I did not say that to him. And the truth is I was just jealous because it was such and is such a good idea. And I thought anything AFI can do to help shine a proper light on this imperative work, well, we're in. But I did say to Scott, it's got to be A plus. It's no fake in this one. You have to have the most informed, the smartest jury. And he said, I got this. And he did. And today is a moment to celebrate that effort and the inspired writers who have brought history to life. Here to take his bow and to moderate the discussion, the executive editor of The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Feinberg. Now Scott is going to bring out the honorees today, but he has given me the gift of introducing you to the first. For he is the founder of the American Film Institute. He was there in the White House Rose Garden when President Lyndon Johnson first announced the creation of AFI. He was there to write the very words that define the Institute's national mandate. And he was there to lead the organization through its early years. And it was then that he planted the seeds for the AFI Center for Film Studies, now the AFI Conservatory. And it was then that he instituted the Harold Lloyd Master Seminar Series at AFI, so named because the seminar's first guest was Harold Lloyd. Across 50 years, these seminars have proved a rich historical record of the art form and have inspired several books on THR's 100 greatest list, including two of his. Conversations with the great movie makers of Hollywood's golden age and conversations at the American Film Institute with the great movie makers the next generation.

I'm so grateful to all of you for making the time to be here. Many of you came from great distances and congratulations on your work being on this list chosen by 322 people from the industry. We're talking about filmmakers like Steven Spielberg, executives, David Zaslav and many others, authors including just about everybody up here plus many others, academics. You can see the whole list online but the point is it is a cross -section of the business. There have been versions of this list that were chosen by film critics. There have been versions by other constituencies but this reflects the taste of our global film community. So thank you again for being here and I want to also just quickly thank Bob Guzzale, Julie Goodwin and everyone at AFI not only for going through all the efforts to make today possible but also for their other lists that Bob referenced because were it not for the original AFI Top 100 list. I don't think I would be here in a career as a film journalist because that really made me fall in love with the movies in the way that I hope this list inspires many other people to check out these books and the others on the list. So thank you to them and to the folks at The Hollywood Reporter for supporting the list and Terry Press for helping us put everything together and all of you for being here. So the way this is going to work is we are going to go down this line a few minutes with each author about the origin and impact and revelations of their book and then we are going to have a looser group conversation afterwards but we're going to begin with Mr. Stevens Jr. These two books that you wrote drawing from the seminars that Bob referenced are you know just fascinating looks at generations of filmmakers who have spoken to students at the AFI, what you know they've shared about their lives, their careers, tips for filmmaking. I wonder if you can just talk about how early on, well again just a little bit more actually about how those seminars started because you were there at the beginning and when it occurred to you that they might make good books.
A highlight from The Economic Impact of Business Owner Outmigration
"It seems like our local GOP leadership, well, I'm not gonna say the conservatives, but the constitutionalists, they don't really care about the community. You never see community initiatives or outreach. And the Democrats and the socialists have that locked down. I mean, as much as there's crime and there's this and that, they're still out in the community kind of giving back. I mean, Mark Poloncarz was just at the Grider Street Community Center a week or so ago, giving out free hot dogs. And unfortunately, that's what people, the voters, the Democrat voters who do outnumber us, that's what they see. It's like instant gratification and they forget everything that's been done. And how do you defeat that? ["Oh, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa"] Hey, welcome back. Mike Lomas, Glenn Wiggle actually taking off, Ron Rheinstein in with me. We've got a special guest on the live line here. We'll talk a little bit about what happened last night. Erie County stuck on stupid again. The pain, the pain. Nationwide though, just not Erie County. Yeah, we're going to talk to an optimist in a little bit who's a workhorse here in Erie County, Nancy Ortecelli. But I got to be honest, I texted her this morning. I'm like, I feel like drinking. And it's like seven o 'clock in the morning. Can we take a personal day? Can we take a personal day? You're just so beat up. I mean, it's just, you know, it's like, you have to ask yourself, how could these people be this dumb? Well, how could you be this dumb? And it's not even rhetorical. Everything you've touched has turned to shit and you continue to vote for the same exact shit. It's just unreal. Because here's, this is just from a sleepless knife yesterday into today. People that left the cities, they're just like, I got to get away from the crime. I got to get away from the poverty, all the above. And their shitty voting has metastasized like a cancer in the suburbs. And it just keeps going and going and going. Well, they don't show up. That's what's so frustrating. Well, there's also that. I mean, you look at the numbers and it's like, how in the world do you not show up? I'm actually going through my phone yesterday. I'm saying, don't forget to vote. Don't forget to vote. Who's on the ballot? That's what I've got to think about. Like, how could you be that freaking stupid? I know. But the other, I mean, even if you look at an area where I grew up in Chictawaga and yes, the demographic has changed substantially since I left in 1998, but for the fact of the matter of the third world that has been imported, the taxes, the last county executive or not, the supervisor, she hammered two increases on the property assessments. It's back to back. Highest taxes in the country. And on top of that, the last one, because she's, again, the politicians, how they're just full of shit. Oh, that's our bad. You know, we're not even, well, maybe up for a second. Oh, we're not going to do another reassessment for two years and then literally the next year, here comes the next increase and all our bad, but we won't do it again. However, you got to pay. Yeah, sorry about that. And that's, and you look at the votes that were cast for supervisor. And I mean, again, how close it was and it'll go to recount. That's it? That's the amount of people that voted? Yeah, well, the GFP didn't do anything with absentee ballots there. So it'll go the other way. Before I forget, download our app, search Financial Guys Media in your app store and be sure to click notifications so you don't miss our weekly media drops. So don't forget about our app. Let me introduce Nancy Oreticelli. I was able to grab her. I know she's extremely busy. Nancy, what is your title today? Besides a miss of everything. I don't know, like, what is your exact title? You're everywhere, you know, constitution coalition, all this stuff. What is your, do you have a title? I mean, Antifa has called me a lot of things. So I know I work for an assemblyman, for assemblyman David DiPietro. I am on the executive board of the Erie County conservatives. I do, I'm the president of the constitutional coalition of New York state. So yeah, I do a lot of things. So that's who I am. I just, I believe in freedom and liberty and no matter what it looks like, I'm not a person who gives up and talking to a couple of people this morning, they're like, why do you sound so happy? I was like, well, I'm used to this. This is how it is here in Erie County. It's nothing new. It's not like - I know, you'd think all of us between the political environment here and then the bills and sabers, we'd be used to disappointment, right? We're like, let's roll out of that. Like, all right, I get it. Let me ask you, let's start out with the county executive race. I mean, what happened there? You know, you can't, first of all, he's literally, the cops are showing up because he's restraining a woman. We had people die in a storm because of his mismanagement. We had a record amount of businesses closed because of the way he handled COVID, right? I mean, you can't ask. And then he drops off all these illegal immigrants. They, 13 out of 50 of them get arrested and brought it up on charges. They destroy a hotel. I mean, it's like, okay, maybe you're not happy with Chrissy, but boy, you have to be some kind of a mental midget to say that's a good - And crimes on the rise. And crimes on the rise, record number. We don't want to enforce laws. Here's your appearance ticket. Yeah, number two in the entire country for Carstola. Number one is our neighbor Rochester. Number two, so what the heck happened? So people are misinformed. And it's like you just said, when you called and texted people and they said, who's on the ballot? Nobody cares anymore because it seems like our local GOP leadership are, well, I'm not gonna say the conservatives, but the constitutionalists, they don't really care about the community. You never see community initiatives or outreach. And the Democrats and the socialists have that locked down. I mean, as much as there's crime and there's this and that, they're still out in the community kind of giving back. I mean, polling cars was just at the Grider Street Community Center a week or so ago, giving out free hot dogs. And unfortunately, that's what people, the voters, the Democrat voters who do outnumber us, that's what they see. It's like instant gratification and they forget everything that's been done. And how do you defeat that? And I think the GOP needs to get out in the community more. I mean, they've had their get out the vote rallies that of consisted maybe 20 to 25 committee members. It wasn't the community. Do you know what I'm saying? And they don't - No, I get it. I was gonna say, but how - Nothing beats a good sailing hot dog. Yeah, here's your meat cylinder, go vote for four years and more tyranny. It's true, it's true. Well, that's, you're right. But the thing is, is, but then you take it a step further. You go fill up your car, holy shit, part of my life. That's even higher than it was a month ago. You go to the grocery store and our household, we do okay. But every time, between my wife, myself, and our two kids, and here's four bags, that was 300 bucks. Daughter, oldest daughter and my wife were down in Tennessee last week. My daughter was looking at the possibility of University of Tennessee. And she says to me, she said, "'Dad, do you know gas is a dollar a gallon cheaper there?' So I went through this whole thing about, you know, it's taxes. She's like, you're kidding me, just taxes. I said, yep, yep, that's the difference, difference between one state and the other. And every time somebody puts gas in their tank, it's an extra 30, 40 bucks here, as opposed to down there. So - So that's you and that's me, but that's not the urban voters. The urban voters are in poverty because of Democrat policies. But yeah, it's still vote that way. But they still vote that way because they'll come and give you free stuff a few times a year. They'll give you hot dogs. They'll give you backpacks. They'll give you this and that. A lot of them maybe don't have vehicles to fill up. Do you know what I'm saying? That's a fair point. But it's, you know what? Now that we're talking, Nancy, that also works against us too. I mean, we are top 10 in the country in poverty. Yeah, top three, I think. Per capita. Yeah, the city of Buffalo is, I think, two or three. Here's the, you know, our fair city. To your point, and I think you mentioned this, you know, the GOP will run on reducing the taxes. And Nancy, you said, these people don't pay taxes. That's true. That's not a problem for them, right? Although it is funny when you interview some of them, they actually think they do. They'll say, well, it's not fair. We're paying our fair share. Like, now you don't pay any federal taxes, and you don't pay any state taxes. If you look at it, and this isn't to be negative, but, and again, money's money. And let's just say they make $50 ,000, they're married filing joint. With your standard deduction, you're probably, you have $25 ,000 maybe in taxes total. Yeah, well, most of them. But that's what I'm just saying. And then you're probably getting a real fund. That's right. Most of them are public assistance. That's right. Talk about the women vote. I mean, you know, you look at other places, other parts of the country, and the women have really rallied together to really change things. And it just, you know, last night, I was really hoping that like town of Amherst, town of Cheektowaga, the women would step up and say, okay, we've got a guy who's clearly, you know, he's abused women. He's threatened a process server, a female process server that he's going to shoot her. And then the cops are showing up. I mean, well, I would think the moms would say, and it's amazing to me, I'm watching his speech last night, I'm thinking all these hypocrite Democrats, they're all, oh, believe the women, believe the women, unless it's a Democrat that can shove the left -wing agenda down your throat, then we don't believe them. So here's my take, two points I want to make. You know, talking about the women vote, I had a phone call the other week and somebody, it was actually Stephon, and he said, do you know a strong woman leader in Western New York who could do calls for Chrissy? And I was like, no, do you? I don't know any woman. There is no strong woman. I said, what about Lynn Dixon? They already had her. And I had thought about it. Mike, you probably remember a few years ago, I came to visit you. I wanted to start a women's group, but the coalition took off. And you know, if there's any women out there, women who would like to start a women's group, I'll help. I mean, I can't run it, but I'll help to get strong women elected. But there isn't. And then you have Moms for Liberty here in Erie County, but for some reason, the GOP will not unite with the grassroots organizations. Moms for Liberty have been phenomenal across the nation because the establishment has partnered with them. I don't know why they won't do it here. I don't get it. And if you would just unite, and it's the same issue with the conservatives and the Republicans, it's no secret we are outnumbered by Democrats. And so what happens with the conservatives and the Republicans who should be working together? The Republicans try to take over the legislature seat that was supposed to be conservative. You know, it was supposed to go to Lindsay Larrigo and they fought it with Jim Malcheski. I like Jim Malcheski and Lindsay Larrigo. They're both great people, but the GOP spent so much money on that primary that they had nothing to give to Chrissy to get her name out during this election because nobody knew who Chrissy was. And then they tried to do a party takeover in Evans where they switched a bunch of Democrats to conservatives, the GOP there did, to try to take over that party. And Ralph Larrigo did a lawsuit and the lawsuit is not finished yet, but the GOP candidate lost miserably. So they're focusing on things that should be uniting us, but they're dividing us instead of uniting. Look at West Connecticut and Lancaster. Those towns won amazingly for their town boards because the conservative committees and the Republican committees there are united and they work together. And I don't understand what the whole issue was with the Republicans trying to take out the conservatives this summer. It was baffling to me. So instead of focusing on Mark polling cars, you're gonna try to take a legacy away from a conservative candidate that it was already in the bag for them. You're gonna focus on a fight that was already a constitutionally minded candidate that was in there. It was a given, what a waste of resources and what a waste of time. That's a shame. Yeah, that's a shame. Absolutely. Well, the financial guys are here to help. I'd like to get you on the radio as well. We'll find that, hopefully we can find a strong female. That's what we need. You need the female vote. I mean, last night, the female vote shows up because Mark had been called, accused of holding a woman, I don't know, hostage or whatever. I mean, holding against her will, but they didn't show up. And they're like, God, that's so frustrating. The last thing before I let you go, the frustrating part to me and folks like Ron is we're in the business community, right? And so we're constantly getting involved. We're constantly trying to do our part. And sometimes I feel guilty because I look at somebody like you and I'm like, oh, I feel like a slug. But yeah, like, oh man, I really do. But the business community, I am just at awe this morning that they didn't show up at all. I mean, at all. How many restaurants did Mark destroy during COVID? How many gyms did he destroy? Now, some of these folks were strong enough to make it through, but I'm gonna be honest with you. If I owned a restaurant, I am never forgetting that. Now, I might be a little bit different of an animal because his picture and Gal Bernstein's picture would be on the front door and there would be a message that says, hey, if you're these people and you're walking in, do not bother, right? I mean, that's where I would be. But I get it. Some of these folks say, well, you know, I don't wanna be that aggressive. Okay, could you send Christie a hundred bucks? Could you put a sign out front of the restaurant to say, hey, just saying, I mean, like, not one. Well, that was the fault of the GOP, that they don't know how to fundraise. They really don't. And like I said before, their fundraisers consisted of just their own committee members. The public doesn't want anything to do with the GOP because the GOP has alienated them. Now, Michael Crocker is a good guy. I've met him. I've worked with him. He's really good, but he's got a lot to fix from the previous leadership. And yeah, I wouldn't want that job. I know. I know. You know what? It's funny you said that because I was talking to Glenn about it and Glenn's like, oh, they needed this. The hardest part about that is so many people have left. When you look at, and I'll say for America, I think it's a great thing, right? I mean, Florida is gaining delegates. New York is losing delegates. Florida had a $21 billion surplus. New York is going to go bankrupt at some point. I don't know when, but the math doesn't work, right? You cannot have the, and the 25 % of people that have left, they're all the top taxpayers, right? They're the ones paying the bills. Mike, this all sounds racist. Stop. That's right. Math is racist. But I mean, that's, even if the people that leave and, you know, from clients and friends and family that are in these Southern states, they still care, but they got up and left. Oh yeah. I mean, it's just - Well, they're not voting, right? They're not participating. Even if voting, but like, even if they've sent a check, like you said to Chrissy, but that's just the whole thing. They're gone. They're gone. I know, but you have, for the people, and I guess maybe this is where my deficiency comes with this, is that I'm like occupying common sense, I guess, way too much. But how the hell do people, again, you look at this, this sobering statistics or drive around the area, what the hell is coming here? Nothing. What is leaving here? A lot. A lot. What is beneficial that is derived from low -T polling cars? Let's just go over the last five years, the scandemic. How many people were affected by that? And how many businesses were lost? How many people, again, how many people have been Vax injured? Because, well, I can't go to the Bills game or the Sabres game, but seriously, I'm gonna roll up my sleeve. You were able to see the playoffs wave, but now you got my old car died. Or, again, my employer's forcing me, because this shit bag in City Hall is following crime wave Kathy, or Andrew, I killed your grandmother, Cuomo. Then you take it further. How many people died in nursing homes alone? One of my best friend's sister died in a hospital alone. Why is that, you may ask? Oh, because she tested positive for the Wuhan sniffles. Yes, I know. And these stories are out there. Yeah, I know. And yet there is zero messaging. And this is from Chrissy. This is from the GOP. This is from any Republican candidate that you can absolutely, and again, voting aside, fundraising aside, but if you got that message out there, debt would resonate. You need money to do that. You do, which is fair. And you need lots of it. I said from day one, I said for Chrissy to win, she probably needs a million bucks. And I think that's a fair number. And I think she got a total of about 150 ,000 from the business community. She was well, well, well underfunded. And I don't know, I was down there last night, I don't know if you got a chance to see her speech last night, but you could tell she cared. There was a few conservatives are sending messages, oh, she can't cry. I'm like, bullshit, she can't cry. She can do whatever she wants to do. You have the stones to step up. Then I was able to see her in the hallway before I said, Chrissy, that she's like, oh man, I feel like a failure. I said, Chrissy, I said, there's a million people in this freaking town, a million people. Do you know who was the only one that stepped up against this piece of shit, Mark Poloncarz? You. So don't let anybody ever tell you that you shouldn't do what you wanna do. There are so many armchair quarterbacks that oh, I should have done this, should have done that. I'm like, Chrissy, you're the only one. Guess what? Mike Lomas could have ran. I could have ran. I could have signed up. I didn't. Now - I feel like I told you to.

All right, all right, well, Alex is still waiting to join us, so we're just going to, you know, play some shorts for a minute and then get rolling. Hold on a second. Hold on a second there, Jacob. All right, we're holding on for Peter. Was that a glitch in the matrix I noticed? Did that song like skip and then speed up, or was I imagining things? I think you're just imagining things. Maybe you had too much coffee. Well, that's unfortunate. Yeah, it's all right. It's all right. The people who have gold and silver's money can make more of that other money, but there's other people can't make more gold and silver at scale. They're like apex predators, they just dominate all the other money. Yeah, they're the lions of the of the community. It's been in the 1970s when gold went up in order of magnitude and price. If you look at the percent annual supply growth, you'd barely recognize that there was any change. You know, it's not like we started radically increasing our gold mining, at least on a percentage basis, because it's actually just it's fundamentally hard to do almost any price. It takes time for new techniques to kind of keep up with that. And there's like an ongoing difficulty adjustment, because, you know, people have been mining gold for thousands of years. And so they've already gotten a lot of easy surface deposits. And so now with all of our modern technology, we're kind of stuck with the deeper deposits. And so even as our technology gets better, you know, the low hanging fruits already picked. And so it's like this ongoing difficulty adjustment. That's why gold's been such a reliable story. Nature's difficulty adjustment is so hilarious. That's wild. Exactly what's going on.

"That's why we see all the change that we're seeing. That's why we see people, especially younger people that are born up to speed with the time that they project into, we say that all the time with the questioning of gender identity and nationality and all these labels that the matrix provides, not wanting to have those labels anymore. Not wanting to be employed anymore, not wanting to be bound to a country anymore. We're seeing more and more of that because we are stepping out of that human created matrix in the questioning of it. Now, some people in their questioning are getting right back into it because the matrix that the draw of the matrix and the tool of the matrix is fear and judgment. That's the overdeveloped part of our ego that creates 100% of suffering in our world is that judgment piece that is never source if you're judging and you're fearing you are never allowing your source being is not engaged, that your ego that's engaged when you're doing that. The source being is allowing that experience because it's appreciation of all that is, including that. But when you detune your ego and allow it to serve you in a smaller way and allow yourself to experience life as source because you are and you don't have to go do anything external to allow that or go plug into anything. It's there. Then you're in 5D and what I would call 5 my version of 5D, which is joyously experiencing the imperfection of the human journey. That's fantastic. And a wonderful pause to invite our Patreon members to go over for the next part of the podcast and hear about just how your practice has evolved since those events and how we've kind of grown into or you've grown into a different way of dealing with your practice and a different.

"You don't stop your house from burning down. You don't stop someone from crossing over when it's their time. Don't stop your dog from having their journey in this dog is going to have a journey of being clumsy. He's clumsy. Many times he doesn't understand gravity. He just doesn't. And you know, we may have more of these experiences that I told that to Michael. I said, you know, we need to accept that as lovely as this little dog is. And he's gorgeous. Oh my God, he's so cute. He's like a little teddy bear. You just can't help but love him. And everywhere we go, he attracts attention. We took him to LA for the surgery. We pull up at the hotel in Beverly Hills and we open the back of the car. And this crowd gathers around the car. What is that? Oh my God, he's so beautiful and poor Lola's like chopped liver setting next to me. But he's an adorable dog, but what I told Michael was, we have to accept that his journey is this. He doesn't understand gravity. He doesn't understand his size. He's always been this way. He tries to climb into air. Get it. And he's not really smart for a dog. He doesn't seem to be that sharp, so our time with him may be very limited. And we should appreciate the time that we have in just allow him to have his experience. And Michael is deep enough into living with me. That he understands the practice on a deep level. And he gets it. And he issues these tools to process all of this as well, because again, his home burned his dog that was, you know, his very attached, he's very attached to this dog and his mother, you know, all those things happen to him. Yeah. So we have to remember that, you know, that happened to me too, but they happened to him as well.

"It up. Yeah. Yeah. And. It's just such an incredibly intense moment. And I understand what you're saying about it wasn't pleasurable or fun or joyous, but you still managed to appreciate it. Right. Appreciation is the word. I was able to appreciate it while it was happening. While the house was burning, while I knew the house was being destroyed, there was a part of me in the very beginning. I thought, well, it's just a chimney fire. I thought it was a chimney fire in the beginning because smoke was pouring from the chimney. It made sense to think whether something stuck in a chimney that's caught fire. I need to get the fire department out here to put that out. Well, it wasn't that. It was the attic, which was a much bigger deal. So once I realized that, you know, hey, you saw going on and on and on and on this more than the chimney. And all these big tools, these picks and axes and two hoses and I couldn't count how many firetrucks were on our own cul de sac. They were just packed everywhere fire trucks. So sitting there in real time and having that experience in appreciation is glorious, not joyful, but glorious that you can reach a place to where you're experiencing something in real time and automatically not judging it. That's the thing. The judgment of it creates the suffering, stream has told us that over and over and over again, the judgment of it creates suffering every single time. And if you learn to not judge something in real time, then you don't suffer in the experience. It's just an experience. So that's what I teach. And God, when my House is burning down, and my dog may be dying and my partner's mother is dying, how do I do all of those things at once and not judge them.

So all of that happened in that little window of time. And I have to tell you that without pitaya practice, I don't know how we would have processed all of that. Well, the interesting thing was when it all happened, you were not in the middle of all of this because this sort of went down with people that are just more active in coaching and stuff in the business right now, but inner circle. I heard from a couple of people, how did all this happen to you? You're mister abundance. God, that's a shit show of stuff. And it's so funny because I never saw it that way. Yeah, okay. Interesting thing is that while I was sitting in the driveway, watching the house that I'd spent a year building. And I picked out everything in that house. Yeah, I remember. It was a big plant every light switch, every fixture, every floor, every paint color, everything I picked everything. I was the project manager for the whole thing. And it was a labor of love. And it really was, and I really had the house exactly the way you name the thing that you want in your home. For me, I had it in that house. It had everything. Everything, every finish every gadget, every fixture, everything was automated. It was different. It wasn't. Yeah, yeah. So I sat and listened to that being destroyed, but the experience of having had it, and then releasing it. So quickly was so different in my now mindset. I didn't sit there and think, why me, I didn't sit there and think, you know, why is this happening to us? Oh, this is karma, oh, I'm being punished. All of that ego driven shit that we're taught to think and do to ourselves in those moments. I did not have those experiences.

Pray the word with David Platt is a resource from radical .NET. Luke chapter ten versus 41 and 42, but the lord answered her. Martha Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her. Would you just let the first verse soak in for a minute? Just picture Jesus looking into the eyes of Martha and saying Martha Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things. Would Jesus say this to you today? Just think. Is there anything or maybe many things that you are anxious about today that you're troubled about today? Just here, Jesus saying to you right now, one thing is necessary. And in this passage, Jesus points to Mary, who is just sitting at his feet, listening to what he says. And Jesus says Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her. The good portion, Mary has made the wise choice instead of fretting, being anxious, being troubled about many things Mary is doing one thing. She's quietly sitting at Jesus feet. Just looking at him and listening to him, this is the one thing that's necessary for you and me in a world filled with things that make us anxious or troubled. I just want to encourage you with Jesus words in Matthew chapter 6 do not worry about anything. Your father in heaven loves you and is committed to providing for you. He commands us in philippians chapter four do not be anxious about anything but an everything with prayer and petition with Thanksgiving, present your requests to God and the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your heart and your mind in Christ. She just hear this word from God to your anxious troubled mind and heart today. He loves you and you can trust him. Think of Isaiah 26, you keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you. So God, I just pray that over every one of our lives right now in this moment that we would feel and experience your peace as we look to listen to you. God, we confess, there are many things going on in our lives and our families and the world around us that we are tempted to be anxious or troubled over. God we pray that you would help us to do the one thing that's necessary, especially when we are tempted to anxiety and to be troubled to fix our eyes on you to hear your word to us. Your love for us to believe and trust your love for us. Your sovereignty over us, oh God, help us to be like Mary and Luke ten and keep us from being like Martha. We praise you for the privilege of sitting at your feet of listening to your word of looking in your face and prayer and meditation on the Bible and the promises that you have made to us and God would pray for people who don't have the Bible. Don't have your promises before them to look to and listen to who are anxious and troubled about many things we think about today. We pray today for the tuvan people of Russia.

"Luke chapter 9 versus 13 through 17, but Jesus said to them, you give them something to eat. They said we have no more than 5 loaves and two fish, unless we are, to go and buy food for all these people, for there were about 5000 men, and he said to his disciples, have them sit down and groups of about 50 each, and they did so and had them all set down and taking the 5 loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, instead of blessing over them, then he broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd, and they all ate and were satisfied and what was left over was picked up 12 baskets of broken pieces, a feeding of the 5000 very familiar story to followers of Jesus. And I read it here. I want to lead us to pray according to it as a reminder of what Jesus desires to do through your life and in your life in that sense, just imagine this story from the perspective of the disciples like you think we don't have near enough resources for all these people. And little did they know who they were talking to in Jesus. It's like they were standing in front of Niagara Falls and saying, I don't think we have enough water. And Jesus, who owns everything with all authority in all creation, is more than sufficient to meet the needs of 5000 men plus women and children who are hungry and so she just takes these 5 loaves and two fish and he blesses them as you praise and then he breaks the load close and what I love is he gives them to the disciples to set before The Crown and just imagine being in their shoes. You get the spread and you start handing out and you go back and you get more. You go back and get more and go back, I just figured it looks on their faces as they're looking at each other smiling. Where's all this coming from? It's amazing. There's more bread. There's more red. We got bread for this 50 over here and that 50 over there, and this 50 over there. It was just 5 loaf. We got all this bread in our hands, like they were so astounded overjoyed as their passing out all these bread and fish and then they pick back up 12 baskets, every one of them coming back with a basket of broken pieces. Do you realize that Jesus one has all authority and having unearthed today that he is able to meet the needs of so many people around us and he has called us to be the instrument through which his miracles are made known in other people's lives.

"Luke chapter three verse 18, so with many other exhortations, he preached good news to the people. Oh, there's so much here in this short verse describing the work, a labor of John the Baptist, with many exhortations, he preached good news to the people. Well, one, make the connection with Luke chapter two verse ten, an angel pronouncing I bring you good news of great joy to all the people and John is proclaiming good news to the people. This is what we do. This is what all who know Jesus do. We preach. We proclaim good news. We have the greatest news in the world. We share it with people. But the word I really want to camp out on and pray according to is when it says in Luke three 18 with many other exhortations, he preached good news to the people exhortations to exhort. It's like a picture of encouragement with passion, encouragement with urging. I exhort you to do this. Exhort you to believe this good news, John was saying I exhort you to repent of your sin. I urge you with passion to do this. I encourage you with this good news. And I just want you to think about sharing the gospel in your life where you go to school or you go to work and your neighborhood, your community, your city. I think if we're not careful, we can view sharing the gospel as merely a matter of transferring information. Let me tell you about Jesus. And as we've prayed in line of March 16, for example, we are attempted to be silent, not even share that much. Not even talk about Jesus, but even when we do talk about Jesus, to talk about him in terms of who he is, what he did on the cross, his resurrection from the dead, but the question is, are we simply sharing information about Jesus? Are we exhorting people to believe in Jesus?

Yes, just to give you that onto what Alberto said, what we're going to be instructing is not only about our experience in prison, for me it was three times and that wasn't going in and coming out. It was back to back to back. So I thought that at the time the cybercrimes ever committing were going to be just dismissed, et cetera, but it was thrown at me back to back. So the computer fraud and abuse act was one big one. The other two were stay charges, but being an IT for over 20 years. Going from consultant to senior consultant, developer, got really interested into cybersecurity and got ahead of myself. So we don't want anyone to take away from this course that it's okay to do whatever you want. We're going to instruct the ways to mitigate actually completely do not do anything or even think of what we've done. And unfortunately, we did get in trouble, but coming back out of prison was hard. It still is to this day in terms of opportunities and people who will give you that trust, but it's not impossible. And for that, we want to share what we've learned and there'll be a lot more sessions to on spaces for AMAs. And things alike, Alberto goes and I are working on more of the syllabus today and throughout the weekend. So feel free to ask us any questions. The cyber topics can range. We don't know everything, obviously, but are more than happy willing to share what we do know. And to make sure that other people are happy and learning too. So if that's the case, even if one person's happy, I feel that that's a success. But we're hoping for a lot more. So just a little bit from my side. Thank you all for your time. Thank you, everybody.

"One book that you would recommend or audience if you could only recommend one book? I would recommend thinking grow rich by an unfolding pedal. Yeah. I love that book. I absolutely believe in the power of your subconscious thoughts. I think that's huge. And I think you really can manifest what you want in your physical life. As long as you want it bad enough and you put forth all the best efforts to get there, somehow you'll get the outcome that you're looking for. You might not necessarily know all of the steps, but take a look at that first step and just do that. Don't look at the whole staircase, just look at it and step at a time. That's awesome. I think I read that book the first time when I was 13 years old, my mom used to take us to these business 7 hours and stuff and grew up in a real rough household had a great example of a father there, but then we would get to visit my mom she didn't see seminars and I was reading books and stuff. Thank you, girl, rich, is one of the ones that changed it for me too. Just go on. I can determine what my outcome is going to be. My folder at steps and stuff, so the last thing that was for you, that's amazing. Absolutely. Yeah, that's actually required reading for every new hire here. So I was reading that until I already had my major life-changing opportunity for me. But that's required reading here for every new ire. So I read that and I saw the way that the owner here is truly living that. So I said, you know, there's something here, you know? That's awesome. What character traits devalue the most? Yeah, so loyalty, honesty. Hard work. I think those are good old fashioned character traits that never really go out of style. The timeless classics. So, you know, obviously just being in business, being transparent, and I've always found that the more that you can just layer cards on the table, the better the outcome of that business deal, whether it's even just saying, hey, you know what, there is no deal here. It's better to just you never want to be underhanded in business. And my opinion, I've seen guys try to take shortcuts and do this in the ads and it never works out for them and always comes back and bites them some way or another. So I think being honest and transparent is really important, being loyal, someone gives you a shot. They give you an opportunity. I think you should really give that your best efforts. Be prepared to show up even if you're not confident if you feel like maybe you're not quite qualified for that opportunity at the point in time. Be as prepared as you can be showing up with that preparedness. We'll give you the confidence that you need to carry that out. And sometimes you're going to fall on your face, but you know what? Turn that into a lesson. Big fan of failure to say get it out of the way. As quick as possible. Fail upwards. So that's good advice to you. So many people are afraid of failing, but then you get the other folks that say, well, just bail as many times as you can. That advice is not meant to be failed and keep failing at the same thing without making any changes. It's fail and make progress as you're moving forward. Absolutely. Yeah, it's so important. I know you got to get off here and just a couple of minutes, but what's the best way for me to hold you right now? Yeah, so I'm on all the social channels.

I'm telling you the marketing and strategy firms think they're clear when they're not at the level. I'm talking about number two. I would take commitment. It has some overlap with character. And there's some really value and that's where we find the idea of how you rebuild trust. Which if we have time we can come back to. Number three is consistency and consistency. If i only had one. I would take clarity because think about this. Clarity of clarity of priorities helps have alignment. Clarity of expectations helps us have a consistency on the team. Clarity values helps us increase our character in an organization. So you can affect all the other pillars with clarity quite quickly. So i would actually start there if you have a character issue at the core you got. It's gonna take more time. You have a clarity issue. You can do something and change it. Change things in two weeks so Moy this whole whole lot more there. I think i went off the rails help i gave. It was like the best lightning round of just wisdom. We were just like bum.
